Yes, names would be helpful to understanding this. People charged are usually named.

Just tried to post the news release from the DOJ's office but was denied. The names are there if you'd like to see them. Not understanding the editorial decision when most are named when charged in the Strib, and all of the accused are named in the DOJ release.

This is happening on Mille Lac's as well. Band members load up Boat fulls of Walleye's and sell them to others. Yes... some have already been caught doing it, how many more have not been caught. I thought the nets and spears were for Tradition and tp put food on the table for the family... Yeah Right!

I just bought a whole bunch of walleye and perch fillets on-line. You can legally buy them on-line. Google Red Lake walleye or walleye for sale if you don't believe me. Very tasty, boneless fillets. Walleye, yellow perch, crappie, northern pike, and whitefish, take your pick. I might place another order because they get ate up so fast.

I remember finding a pile of northerns rotting in the woods on the leech lake reservation back in the 80's.It was about 3 feet high,and had alot of big fish in it,which all had net marks on them. I guess someone netted more than they wanted to fillet.
